Two further Migrant Health Check clinics are being piloted at Yeovil Health Centre on 02 and 16 July 2022 and referrals from primary care are now being accepted for both clinics. An EMIS web template referral form is also available.

The Migrant Health Check should be delivered in addition to a new patient consultation. People fleeing the conflict in Ukraine may have a range of health requirements that need to be assessed and managed as soon as possible after their arrival. The UK Health Security Agency has issued guidance for Primary Care that can be found at UKHSA arrivals from Ukraine guidance for primary care | PHE/DH/DWP guideline | Guidelines

When referring Ukrainian patients to the health check clinics please ensure they are aware of the purpose of the assessment and that the clinics are currently being run at Yeovil Health Centre which is centrally situated in Middle Street Yeovil over the large branch of Boots the Chemist. Practices should ensure patients are happy to attend the Saturday appointment and aware of its location. Clinics at other venues across Somerset are currently being planned to improve accessibility to this service. 20 June 2022
